For the wine legend of today, we opened the doors of our private collection to make you discover one of our favorite wines : Château Clerc Milon Pauillac (Grand Cru Classé) 2005.
Having become one of the most sought-after crus of the Médoc, Château Clerc Milon has acquired a nobility and richness comparable to that of the best.
The 2005 vintage is Intensely coloured, the wine still looks very young.
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon(48%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Petit Verdot (1%) and Carmènère (1%), the intense and open nose displays ripe fruit, liquorice, spice and roasted coffee aromas.
The structure, well-contained, round and powerful, builds gradually from a clean attack. The tannins are already well-integrated and very elegant. The vinous and full-flavoured palate is sustained by super-ripe fruit and a touch of pepper, leading into a long and well-structured finish on notes of bitter chocolate.
A fine vintage which still needs a few years to reach its full expression.
